Dear friend,

You live in a culture where the husband it the boss in many families, and the women are often treated like possessions. Lebanon is in many respects a very modern country and has a sizable population of liberated women.

You want to be such a woman but find it almost impossible to change the system.

There are a number or organizations in your country where you can turn to for support.

Here are the most relevent ones:

These sights will give you much information and courage. It is an uphill battle but you can make some advances and change your position with him.

I wish you strength and wisdom and shall keep you in my prayers.
